The manager of the Nigeria national football team, Stephen Keshi, has left his post after the defeat of the Super Eagles in the pre quarter final round of the FIFA World Cup 2014.
Nigeria suffered a 0-2 defeat against France a couple of days back to get knocked out of the biggest international event.
Keshi didn’t do a bad job as coach for Nigeria in the tournament and was not in danger of being sacked, but, despite that, he opted to quit taking the full responsibility of the defeat against France on his shoulders.
However, there have been rumours that the main reason behind Keshi’s resignation is his willingness to take over as South Africa manager.
This is the second time that Keshi has resigned as the Super Eagles boss. He had done that last year as well when Nigeria had achieved the Africa Cup glory, but, he eventually had agreed to carry on after being convinced by the association.
